A seemingly ordinary evening in Nelson, New Zealand took a dramatic turn as a simple family dinner decision escalated into a major controversy. 

In an astonishing turn of events, a 42 year old mum’s unilateral decision to forgo fish and chips for dinner this time has been labelled a “threat to democracy” by young members of the household.

The Smith family, comprised of mum Jane, dad Michael, and their three sons – Jack (14), Ben (12), and Sam (9) – have got into the habit lately of dropping in to Victory Square Fish and Chips on a Wednesday, as the day has become busy with various after school activities.
